Nah, the gist of it should be -

 

Do you go to games?

Yes - this is all your fault

No - good guy

It is clearly "good guy" for both but you continue to have that chip on your shoulder

Marshy - no offence and I don't mean this in a bad way but you're a weapons-grade walloper.

Can we stop all this shit please. Some people are still going to games and some people are not going to games, it’s really as simple as that. Neither is better than the other. Neither loves Falkirk less. We don’t have to keep discussing the fucking point no matter what side anyone is on. It’s boring.

Exactly. A stable top flight club ran excellently as a business and a football team. They have had a number of managers over recent years but continually manage to make excellent appointments one after the other. Unlike our diddies who keep on employing one disaster followed by another.

Not sure how it has progress and indeed the finer details of it ( they were discussing it on off the ball a few weeks back)but were what they have as a support not kicking up by their BoD decision to give the rest of the stadium to teams with larger supports and have the home support in main stand only (not sure if it was to include the Hibs/hearts or only the OF). I know it was down to finances and their board were saying they ahve tried various initiatives to increase the support and this was the only other means to increase the revenue of the club.

Remember a quote from our friends in Greenock that Tidsers fitness was always an issue, and that there midfield set up allowed for this, kinda makes sense now. If true about pinning RM to the wall, I’m actually surprised he wasn’t sacked for gross misconduct, therefore that story is probably shite. It’s more than likely he’s maybe toiled for fitness, hoping he’d get away with this being lower league, unfortunately even the part time teams fitness levels are decent.

Connolly is the prime example on what to do when you are not in the starting 11 which he was under M & M

work hard, increase your fitness and take your chance when you are on the pitch

You've properly lost the plot this week based on nothing much in particular. The drink?

I don’t recall you ever asking me that question - if you did then I’ve unknowingly missed it.  It’s certainly got nothing to do with lacking bottle so wind your neck in. 

How long a list would you like as to who I think would’ve done a better job thus far? I’ll always maintain that I think Latapy would be a very good appointment for Falkirk but that ship has probably sailed given his location. Other names I’d have offered the job to before M&M include (in no particular order) Darren Young, Danny Lennon, James McDonaugh, Jim McIntyre, Ian Murray, Owen Coyle, Joe McLaughlin...that’s just off the top of my head.

Admittedly, very few names in that list  that I’d call spectacular but that is an indication of how low we’ve sunk. That’s also without considering any candidates from down South or even abroad who might have shown an interest , but as you know fine well, I’ve no way of knowing who applied so can’t answer fully.

Just what the club needs. Another journeyman manager to lead a bunch of journeymen.

No way would we be better off with your suggestions....

Only in your opinion obviously...

I answered your question fully. Didn’t expect you to agree with it so we’ll just leave it at that.

This time last season I was pretty confident that we would avoid the drop.
Right now I am not at all confident that we will go up.
As for the MSG/BOD they have either been spectacularly unlucky with their decisions over the past ten years or alternatively they are a no use shower of incompetents.
Can’t decide...

so basically either washed up journeyman or managers doing absolutely bang average in the league we are in. NOICE.

I would opt for the latter option, i would say seven of those ten years they were riding their luck and its ran out.

Wouldn’t call any of them journeymen, other than possibly Coyle who’s still managed at a far higher level than we’re currently at. The only managers in League 1 doing “absolutely bang average” are our own. But hey, if draws with East Fife, Stranraer, Airdrie, Arbroath and last minute winners at Montrose is your thing, don’t let me rain on your parade. Thanks for your valuable contribution, “NOICE”. 👍

But when you do get good stewardship of a club you get the dividend. St Johnstone is a good example  2 -3 months ago there were moves by some to get rid of Wright. Correctly they had faith in him and got the backing as he sorted out the issues. That club are a good comparison and in many ways to Falkirk and an example that the club should learn from.

100% correct, what did it take? Last at the bottom in 1986, purchase by a local businessman with money, a plan and a willingness to take the time to do it right. It took a move to a purpose built facility (check), after selling their previous pitch to a supermarket (check), that they own (whoops), and a lot of careful development, but the payoff has been excellent.

St. Johnstone also develop local talent, something Falkirk did well till the Academy was closed, and that Raith seem to have finally got a bead on, with results we are seeing. The ugly reality of the BoD certainly seems to be that there is no master plan to rebuild Falkirk F.C., just a stumble from crisis to crisis. Good coaches and rent-a-players can only do so much to paper over the huge cracks in the foundation, something that many posters here see only too clearly.

The real question is, who is Falkirk’s possible savior? After the MC fiasco, it seems that the club has become an unattractive target, unless there is a wealthy fan out there. The BoD are too comfortable with the status quo, and unfortunately it seems likely that nothing the fans do will make them uncomfortable without risking crippling the club.

If I had to guess, a buyout is the only way out of a slow spiral down the leagues, but the blind and deaf idiots at the top don’t care yet.

Bollocks most of the board may be gone but the current board are just the latest bunch of numpties who Cary out the running of the club on behalf of the owners the MSG and the main owners are going nowhere. It’s a ploy to take the heat of them ! They can sack the board or let’s call them the latest crew at any time! Nothing’s changed!

So the MSG sacked Lang, Campbell, Thomson and McKinnon?  Sound.

Did an update previously where a lot of pages had been added to the thread.

It was about the academy being closed and how bad that was.

The latest update for those not wanting to trawl through the pages: Some people go to games, and some people don’t.

Why not do that every home game then, but without 3,500 paying to get into the Stadium? I’d be up for attending all home matches and repeating what happened on the last day of last season. I’d like to think they’d soon get the message and fu*k off!

Kudos!
